Letter to the Editor: Susan Garrett on Memorial Day
State Senator shares her thoughts on the holiday.
I look forward to Memorial Day every year because it gives me the opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices that have been made to keep America strong and free. Men and women of all socioeconomic, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, from all across the country, have fought courageously in wartime and in peace so that citizens like us can walk safely throughout our communities and our country.
Memorial Day is a day where we set aside our differences and stand united to honor the services and achievements of the men and women of the U.S. armed forces who paid the ultimate sacrifice in fighting for our nation. We recognize the principals they stood for and causes for which they gave their lives, and we are forever grateful.
